Iran might have been hiding an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile testing site in plain view, until a group of California-based experts figured it out while watching public Iranian TV and obtained new photos of the area.
The team from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey announced their findings late Wednesday in The New York Times. ICBMs could threaten Europe and the US and their findings could have a major impact on the ongoing Iran nuclear issue debate…more
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently warned Iran that if it harms Israel, the American military will respond, the Walla news site reported Thursday, quoting senior Israeli sources.
The sources reportedly said that in the run-up to President Donald Trump’s announcement on Tuesday that the US would withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran, “the US moved to the stage of graduated threats against Iran” in a bid to prevent any flareups in the region.
The (Hebrew) report did not specify how Pompeo conveyed the reported warning.
The Prime Minister’s Office declined to comment on the report.
The Trump administration on Thursday condemned Iran’s firing some 20 rockets into Israel from Syria hours earlier, a move the White House warned could have far-reaching consequences for the entire region… more
Iranian lawmakers ascended the podium in Tehran’s parliament and lit an American flag on fire, shouting “Death to America!” on Wednesday in response to an official announcement by U.S. President Donald Trump that America would be withdrawing from its nuclear deal with Iran.
The spontaneous demonstration included multiple yelling parliamentarians, who also burned a piece of paper representing the nuclear deal.
Parliament speaker Ali Larijani said, “With a national consensus, we will give the United States and Zionists a response that they will regret, according Iran’s Mehr news agency. Reuters reported that Larijani stated, “Trump does not have the mental capacity to deal with issues.”
Thousands of Iranians also took to the streets in protest of America’s decision, holding pre-printed placards opposing in America in Farsi, English and Arabic. While the posters read in English, “Down with U.S.A” and “Down with Israel,” the translations of the Farsi and Arabic read, “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”… more
Our president is not being quiet or sitting down and shutting up! He is standing and doing what is right. Reading the old testament gives a great insight on how our country is being run. According to old testament President Trump would be seen as doing “what is right in the eyes of the Lord”. There are many who are against Trump but reality they are against GOD. God placed him there for a specific purpose and he is fulfilling his purpose. Do you see the birth pains speeding up? Are you ready for what is coming?
Esther 4:14 If you keep silent at this time, liberation and deliverance will come to the Jewish people from another place, but you and your father’s house will be destroyed. Who knows, perhaps you have come to your royal position for such a time as this.”
ain of flightless animals has been reported throughout history. In the first century AD, Roman naturalist Pliny The Elder documented storms of frogs and fish. In 1794, French soldiers saw toads fall from the sky during heavy rain Lille in France. Rural inhabitants in Yoro, Honduras, claim ‘fish rain’ happens there every summer, a phenomenon they call Lluvia de Peces. And within the last two days, fish rains were reported in Iran, China and India.
According to witnesses, small fish – same species and size – fell from the sky and covered half of a road in Golpayegan, in the Iranian province of Isfahan, Iran on April 24, 2018. The phenomenon occurred during a heavy storm. One of the many explanations for this strange phenomenon is a tornado or a waterspout that would eject fish from water bodies into the air… There is a dam and a large reservoir just 18 km southeast of the city of Golpayegan. Did the fish fly from there?… more
BIN: Iran is establishing military bases in war-torn Syria in an apparent attempt to create a land bridge to the Mediterranean that will allow them to dominate the region. According to the US officials cited by NBC News, Russia is now running the air war for Assad while Iran is running the land war.
Iran now has a substantial military presence in Iran to support its leadership role in the Syrian civil war. On Friday, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, told the UN Security Council that Iran has gathered more than 80,000 Shiite jihadists in Syria. In the past two weeks, military flights from Iran to Syria have increased drastically, supplying the Assad regime with weapons and materiel.
In what seems to be political preparation for a war with Iran, the Knesset passed a law on Monday giving the prime minister authority to declare war or to order a major military operation after consulting with the minister of defense. Before this law was passed, a vote by the full cabinet was required to initiate such military actions.
According to Rabbi (Pinchas) Winston, Iran’s military presence in Syria is the match that will set off an even greater explosion in Syria. more …
Jews News: Iranian Army Ground Forces commander Brig.-Gen. Kiumars Heidari has warned that Israel can no longer threaten the Islamic Republic.

Opinion by Bible Prophecy Tracker: It doesn’t take a prophecy watcher to see that the world is growing increasingly dangerous. Each April I have shared with you the research done by a Christian market trading adviser who studies cycles for clues on how markets will move.
I first found Insiide Track from Bill Koenig’s website http://www.watch.org who posted the events surrounding April 19-20 after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing April 15, 2013.
The following post is from Tuesday:
“Syria Sets Stage: Gold Corroborating…China Conflict Coming?”
“In the late-1990’s INSIIDE Track began a discussion on an uncanny cycle that has impacted America since her founding and has timed momentous, empire-shaping events dating back for millennia. Among other things, this date has timed:
— First shot of Revolutionary War
— First shot of Civil War
— Start of Spanish/American War
— Failure of Bay of Pigs Invasion
That date – April 19 – is what I call the ‘Date of Aggression’. It is the culmination of the Week of Aggression’ (April 12 – 19) & Month of Aggression’ (March 20/21 – April 19/20). One of the natural reasons for this rise in aggression is the start of the Natural Year in the Northern Hemisphere. The first month of the Natural Year begins on March 20/21 (vernal equinox/start of Spring) and lasts into April 19/20.
Thousands of years ago, this was the time ‘when kings went off to war’ – as described in the Old Testament of the Bible.
It is the time when ancient Rome celebrated Tubilustrium – preparing the army for war with four days of aggressive & intentional bloodshed.
And in the millennia since then, this time period has consistently & repeatedly timed escalating acts of aggression as half of the globe comes back to life after the ‘containment’ of Winter.
As explained since the early-2000’s, that period – from March 20 – April 19 – often determines what the rest of the year will look like – in terms of war or peace.
Historically, this date times not only military battles, but financial, natural, & social upheaval as well. If you expand the parameters a few days on each side of April 19, it also includes:
— Assassination of Abraham Lincoln
— Battle of San Jacinto (the final shot in the war for Texas independence)
— Thornton Affair (first shot in Mexican-American War)
— Doolittle Raid on Japan (America’s first ‘shot’ on the Japanese homeland in WWII)
— League of Nations dissolved
— End of Viet Nam conflict & fall of Saigon
— Operation Praying Mantis (1988; largest battle of surface warships since WWII)
And in recent times, a new type of battle has unfolded:
— Waco/Branch Davidian debacle
— Oklahoma City Bombing
— Columbine High School massacre
— Virginia Tech shooting
— Boston Marathon bombing
— Metcalf sniper attack
… and there is much, much more.
Due to over-arching long-term cycles (decades & centuries in duration), this Date of Aggression was/is projected to hold added significance in 2018 – 2021. And now, as we approach this date, the US is engaged in battles on multiple fronts with Syria now taking center stage and risking all kinds of unintended (or intended) consequences that could spiral out of control in the coming months & years. These actions have already validated the Month of Aggression and Week of Aggression… as we bear down on the Date of Aggression.
While attention is focused on the Middle East, China is initiating war games in the Taiwan Strait… beginning on April 18, 2018!”
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in in Ankara on Wednesday for a three-way summit on the Syrian conflict.
The leaders were determined to speed up efforts to ensure “calm on the ground” in Syria, and to protect civilians in “de-escalation areas,” according to a joint statement posted on Rouhani’s presidential website.
The three countries are working together to try to reduce the violence in Syria despite supporting opposing sides in the war. Russia and Iran are Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s strongest backers, while Turkey supports anti-Assad insurgents.
Despite their differences Iran, Russia and Turkey are three of the major powers involved in a conflict whose course has been largely defined by foreign interventions, and their influence could increase further if the United States pulls out… more
